President Trump's Lawyer: Not Aware of Any Investigation

Finally, we know that Muellers investigators are also looking for “any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, ” as the Post phrased it.

Sekolow says the tweet was in response to a Washington Post story that ran with five unnamed sources.

Sekulow noted that "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace had pushed him hard on whether Trump is under investigation, "and his first question is have you been notified of an investigation, and the answer, as I said, is no". Federal prosecutors sometimes, but not always, advise an individual if he is at risk of being charged or is the subject of an investigation. But there is no hard-and-fast rule requiring a potential defendant to be advised of an investigation and his or her role in it.

"In that letter, there's recommendation for the removal of James Comey".

President Trump continued to refer to what he feels is a "witch hunt" against him in another slew of new tweets Sunday morning, writing that it is a distraction from the rest of his priorities: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

Trump also reportedly asked Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo to intercede with Comey on the Flynn case, then later asked Coats and National Security Agency chief Mike Rogers to state publicly that Trump was not personally under investigation. Mueller left his position at the firm to lead the investigation.

"But just because you haven't been notified doesn't mean you're not under investigation", Cuomo shot back.

Sekulow says the president has a social media platform that can reach 107 million people and "I don't tell him what to write or not write".

The president has directed some of his frustration at Rosenstein and Mueller. Sen.

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said, "The FBI is going to do its job". "The best thing that could happen for the president, and the country, is a full and credible investigation".

Marines open the door of the White House in Washington, Monday, June 19, 2017, in preparation of the arrival of Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela to meet with President Donald Trump.

Trump's tweet seemed to suggest Trump had recorded those conversations, though he refused to elaborate in a Fox News Channel interview days later.

"One way or the other, we need an answer", Schiff said on ABC's "This Week" yesterday. If there is an investigation of the circumstances of Comey's firing, and the Deputy Attorney General (who is serving as Acting AG for the investigation due to Jeff Sessions' recusal) was instrumental in the firing, that sure looks like a conflict, Turley says. Schiff cited the fact that the president at one meeting "cleared the room" of advisers and asked to speak to Comey alone.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said. Angus King, an independent from ME, stressed that the probe will likely last for a long time.

Senator Angus K of ME said, "A lot of people have asked, when will we be done? This is a very complex matter involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents and lots of witnesses".

Top aides and allies have urged the president to stay off Twitter.
